Everyone loves the idea of clean electricity and self sufficiency, but we all know, most homeowners primary concern is lowering their electricity bill to save money.

The big question everyone wants to know is, how much will I save on my electricity bills if I install solar panels? The exact numbers vary depending on the details of your installation.

How much money do solar panels save you on electric bills?

A common misconception about installing solar panels is that your electric bill will go away entirely. You still receive a utility bill but net metering saves you money. With net metering, your monthly electricity bill is calculated both ways, based on the net of your overall energy consumption and the monthly output from your solar panels. If you are producing more energy than you’re using the utility company will actually pay you!

The Pros of Solar Panels:
-A true renewable energy source
-Reduce your electricity bill and provides insurance against rising power prices
-Low maintenance cost
-Financial incentives from the government
-They operate quietly, with no moving parts and emit zero pollution.
-They have a long service life and reliability in operation. The guarantees given by the manufacturers for the solar panels are generally for more than -25 years of good operation.

Outside of lower electricity bills, solar power systems also lower the carbon footprint of your home, and can lead to potentially higher home values. It’s a good idea to get solar quotes for your residential solar system.

  1. I live in up state NY. I had my PV system installed over 7 years ago. The only bill for electric I pay is a line charge of $17.04 for about 7 months of the year.

  2. I live in Quebec, Canada. We have an average electricity rate of 5,4 ¢ / kWh (US$). It's take more than 30 years to cover the cost of any system. You have to look at an other angle to find a reason to go solar.

  3. I've been looking into this lately and I feel it's great, my only problem is the Fed is always sticking there greedy hands in to regulate and suck money out to line corporate pockets, they care less about the environment and the savings for the average family.

  4. You didn't mention what maintenance will cost or an interest costs you really forgot a few important elements in this video

  5. Turns out Solar Power and battery backup can save your life. Here in NYC, I’m telling you all to shelter in place. Wear medical masks when you go outside and social distance.
